The success of landscaping services depends on the quality of the soil. If the soil lacks nutrients, even after making efforts, the landscaper cannot grow plants and grass on the land. Hence, all professional landscapers check the condition of the soil initially before starting the landscaping activities.

In Guildford, ask the landscaper to fix the condition of the soil for landscapes. They add organic matter, invest in mulching, and add topsoil to improve the soil and make it suitable for gardening and landscaping.

Ways landscapers improve the condition of the soil

Adds organic matter to soil

Landscapers add organic matter to the soil to enhance its nutritional value. By applying organic compost in layers, the soil can be made rich in nutrition. You can easily create your own organic matter, which consists of manure and lead mould. Once the soil’s nutritional value is increased, you can easily plant grass and plants into it and grow them. Adding organic matter is a simple process and must be followed by all landscapers irrespective of the condition of the soil.

Adds topsoil on the existing land

Adding topsoil to the existing coat prepares the land for plantation. Clay is one of the most common types of top soil and certainly one of the favourites of all landscapers. Again, many landscapers also use sand because it allows water to drain out from the land easily. Depending on the weather conditions, the landscaper needs to decide on the right type of topsoil.

Adds mulches for moisture retention

If you are looking for an immediate way to enhance the quality of the soil, then mulch will certainly be a boon for you. Using a mulch cover on the soil helps retain moisture. This allows the soil to soak up nutrients and keep the temperature high. This is effective, especially during the scorching summer heat.

Adds cover crop for soil enrichment

If your plants struggle to grow, adding a crop cover is an easy way to help them. A crop cover is also like a protective cover over the soil. It keeps off pests, prevents weed buildup, and prevents harsh chemicals from building up in the soil.
